RICHMOND -- A few thoughts/updates/funny quotes from Friday morning’s walkthough at the waterlogged Bon Secours training center: 

  • Bacarri Rambo is still working exclusively as the first team free safety -- and it doesn't appear like that's going to change anytime soon.
  • If there were any questions about the starting right tackle in Week 1, there shouldn’t be. More than a week into camp, it’s apparent that Tyler Polumbus is the No. 1, Tony Pashos is his backup and Jeremy Trueblood is the third stringer.
  • Josh Morgan did not participate in the morning session, but says he expects to practice this afternoon. He tweaked his hamstring when he slipped on the wet turf late in Thursday’s practice. “It was just precautionary today,” he said. “Just making sure I didn’t pull anything.”
  • A local company had one of its helicopters hover over the fields this morning for 34 minutes in an attempt to dry them following two days of heavy rains. The fields were better, but still slick in spots, players said. “It didn’t work too much,” Morgan said. “We can’t complain. … But it's farm-like with the smell.”
  • Cornerback Richard Crawford, who appeared to strain his hamstring Thursday afternoon, was on the field Friday morning and occasionally participated.
  • WR Donte’ Stallworth (hamstring strain) participated in the walkthrough after watching from the sidelines for a few days. It will interesting to see if he practices this afternoon.
  • Trent Williams was not wearing a hard cast on his left wrist and hand for the morning walkthrough. But the Pro Bowl left tackle said the cast, which resembles a boxing glove, will be reapplied before the afternoon session. “It doesn’t feel great, but nobody out here feels great at this time,” he said. Asked how he hurt it, Williams said, “It’s wear and tear from football.”
  • Williams also had a little fun with all the media questions about the helicopter. Asked if he saw it, he cracked: “I did not. Did y’all see it? Was it cool? Take pics? Put it on your Instagram?"
